In late December, Career and Technical Student Organization (CTSO) executive directors had an opportunity to meet with the Obama Presidential Transition Team (PTT) to discuss our policy issues of concern to the incoming administration. As a follow-up to that meeting, Executive Directors of the CTSOs formulated a policy letter with recommendations to the PTT:
- Recommended for the Assistant Secretary for the Office of Vocation of Adult Education position Dr. James R. Stone III, Executive Director of the National Center for Research in Career and Technical Education at the University of Louisville.
- Encouraged the Obama administration to support the important Career and Technical Education component of education reform by continuing to reinforce the relationship that historically has existed between administrations and the CTSOs.
- Encouraged the administration to sponsor a White House conference designed to bring national attention to the value of co-curricular student leadership activities in our nation’s schools.
In addition, we submitted to the PTT a statement regarding “Civic Engagement Post Inauguration.” We welcome your ideas on service learning and civic engagement.

If so, share your idea in the comments section. If not, use the Be Part of It! kit with your current members and officers to develop a plan for expanding your chapter
